    Re: RIP Jerry Jeff Walker

    I saw him in the 70's at a concert in Portland, Oregon. He was already the soundtrack of my life at that time. Tried to name my first born Gerald Jeffrey but my wife was having none of it.

    Re: Playing slide mandolin

    We have a whole lot of slide mandolin threads. Take a look at this thread for some information. There is more.

    The Hans Brentrup method is my favorite and in my mind a simple and elegant answer.
  7. Re: on Reverb: When a scroll isn't a scroll, or is it?

    They had to work real hard to get the F holes in the right spot for the bridge. Being a lump scroll is bad enough, the rest is a little strange, right down to the tuners. Almost like copies of a...

    Re: Waverly tuner repair

    Yes, it was a real project. Here is the thread. You can skip to the end for the pictures.

    Re: Waverly tuner repair

    There is an e-Bay seller that sells Gotoh tuners at a really good price. You'll need to know if they are worm over or worm under and also if it's A or F style tuners.

    Re: Waverly tuner repair

    Here are a set of Waverly and Gotoh tuners. The Gotoh's are on the left, the Waverly tuners are on the right. The Gotoh's are a bit different than yours as I replaced the Phillips head screws with...

    Re: Waverly tuner repair

    Honestly, unless you're a glutton for punishment I'd just replace them. You can probably move your buttons to the new ones.

    Those are either Gotoh tuners or the fake Saga Gotoh tuners that came on some Kentucky products a while back. When you pull off a button is the post square or round with two flats and are they A or...

    Re: Waverly tuner repair

    I would call Stewmac as well but before you do that could you post a picture of the rest of the tuners. I don't see a collar on that tuning button shaft.

    That part is easy. Generally a small fortune. An extremely small fortune. If you find the right buyer it might get you enough to buy lunch someplace. As amazing as it seems to be they aren't really...

  18. Re: Pickett mandolin

    Some Pickett guitar information might be found here on the UMGF Not sure if that's right or not. Descue might know.
  19. Re: Pickett mandolin

    OK then, a 10 year old thread. Every thread with the word Pickett in it on the Cafe is here.

    He did nice work and we know where the one viola and that one mandolin are. That's really pretty cool.

    Re: An evening with the Martin harp mandolin

    The way the one on the OP's mandolin is sitting it wouldn't protect you from anything :)

    Re: An evening with the Martin harp mandolin

    Enlighten me, it may be called a sleeve guard, how does it protect the sleeve and what is it attached to?

    Re: An evening with the Martin harp mandolin

    There was also an inexpensive "Lyre" type tailpiece that looked similar to this that was used on some bowlbacks. I assumed that's what it was until I saw the piece in its entirety. I'm wondering it...

    I think you're right, it appears to be held in place by the course of strings it's under.

    OK, looking at it now that wouldn't be an arm guard as it's under the strings but the actual tailpiece below it is the same as the others sans the decoration. The bigger question would be what is...
